Three D Radio announcer, Megan Cat (up until recently with her husband, the late Peter Brat) lives in "The BratHaus" a rural seaside home about 100km from Adelaide on South Australia's scenic Fleurieu Peninsula.
Veteran musician Peter, and artist/musician Megan, were long-time DJs on Three D Radio 93.7fm
, Adelaide's eclectic independent music station.
Together Peter & Megan, known as "The Cat and The Brat" created this blog to allow listeners to review the playlists of their radio show, "Technicolour Dreaming" , watch clips of selected songs and simply join them in the enjoyment of their favourite music... psychedelia, 60's garage,
surf, punk/post-punk, pop, folk-rock, glam, 'Krautrock', goth, 80's electro... and much more!
But The Cat is carrying on the tradition, with guest co-presenters, and "Technicolour Dreaming" will continue in the same format, drawing from the huge "Cat & Brat" music collection, with the addition of new releases and reissues to keep things current. The Brat is hugely missed, but the show must go on, as he wanted...

Technicolour Dreaming

I was lucky enough to be mysteriously sent a copy of the 3-CD set of acts playing at "The 14th Dream of Doctor Sardonicus Festival" in Wales last week, so featured a selection, including Aethereal, Paisley Sky and The Sons of MOD, who I was surprised to learn have moved from the UK to my hometown, Adelaide. So much on here, there's bound to be more played on the show next week. It was also time to play a few New Zealand faves, with classic tracks from The House of Nimrod, the Hi-Revving Tongues and Human Instinct. And just a reminder that Three D Radio's annual Radiothon will be happening in a fortnight, so tune in to win some groovy "bribes to subscribe". Bye now!!!
